Description

Tanzania is a unique country with unique needs. Educating students to be able to thrive in the 21st century world Tanzania finds itself in is the priority of every dedicated teacher. This convention is designed to provide a platform for educators to be able to explore the issues facing Tanzanian students today and learn about evidence-based best-practice teaching that can meet our students where they are at. Presenters will be teachers and education actors working in Tanzania, and participants will be able to choose the workshops that are most relevant to their specific situation, and then develop practical skills and teaching resources that they can take straight to their own classrooms. Come along and share with other teachers passionate about educating for success for both students and the future of Tanzania.

 

Workshop sessions include topics like: • Effective assessment • Innovative teaching strategies • Creating reusable teaching resources • Scaffolding tasks • Differentiation in the classroom • 21st century skills • Learning objectives and success criteria • Meaningful student involvement and giving useful feedback.

 

Presenters: If you are an educator with a particular area of interest or concern in education, then you are invited to apply to be a presenter at the convention. Presenters will be professionally mentored to assist them in becoming an expert in the current best practice for their chosen area, able to competently run professional development workshops for Tanzanian educators. For more information, contact TFFT or an associate organisation by August 20 at the latest.

 

Participants: Any interested educators are invited to notify their DEO (or TFFT or an associate organisation) of their interest and their reason for wishing to be allocated one of the limited places at this convention. Successful applicants will be committing to full convention attendance and participation as well as follow-up M&E by TFFT and associate organisations.

 

Remote participants: A number of supported places have been allocated for remote educators. This package covers transport and accommodation costs as well as all meals throughout the convention. To find out more about eligibility criteria and how to apply, please contact TFFT.

 

Provided: Participants are provided with lunch and snacks, a resource pack including all workshop notes and necessary stationery. Travel to and from the convention can be reimbursed for participants who adhere to the convention expectations. All participants and presenters will also receive a certificate verifying their involvement in the convention.

 

Tanzanian educators are the best providers of ideas and resources best suited to Tanzanian classrooms. The convention is designed to provide many opportunities for participants to showcase ideas they have tried and resources they have developed – even those that haven’t really worked. Prizes will be offered for innovative ideas and resources shared with other participants.

 

Lots of opportunities to learn, share, network, be resourced and win prizes!
